notes to Mom

four months, or days
or years my tears have fallen 
hard and fast this week
small seeds of ache
sprouting and swollen
fill me with memories
hard and sweet

so much of you lives on in me
the sharp impatience, the need to be
right at any cost
the stiff and painful joints
but also the curiosity, playfullness
and the love, above all
the heart filled with love
and the need to care for

life is picking up speed
down here, where you no longer
have your being
so much I would share
and wonder if you know
somehow
and if you miss me too


walking with Emily, broken, redeemed and thankful

I totally understand. My momma has been gone for 7 years, but I continue to miss her more and more.

Hi, nice to meet you. I'm hopping over from the IP link up. I'm so sorry for your loss. The world feels different without loved ones in it, doesn't it?

Grieving various things and people with you too tonight.
